Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
Since 1981, CDBG funds have been granted to the Village of Mount Prospect by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

For more details on the CDBG Program, view our reports. The Village currently commits CDBG funds to a number of Public Service Agencies that provide services to Mount Prospect residents. Many of these services are housing-related such as homeless prevention, emergency housing, transitional housing programs or housing for adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities.
